Leander Paes' stupendous show at the US Open, where he won the mixed doubles title and finished runners-up in men's doubles, brought him back to the top 10 as he gained eight places to be number eight in the latest ATP rankings issued on Tuesday.

Paes, who now has 2860 points in his kitty, paired with Lukas Dlouhy in men's doubles and with Cara Black in the mixed doubles in the US Open.

Paes' estranged partner Mahesh Bhupathi also gained one place to be 11th with 2680 points.

Rohan Bopanna's doubles ranking though suffered badly as he lost 10 places to slip out of top 50 and is placed 56th with 1041 points.
